Eastfield Dog Park

Construction of the Eastfield Dog Park will start on Tuesday 14 March and is expected to take six weeks, subject to weather conditions.

Following a review of our parks and reserves and consultation with the community, Eastfield Park was identified as the appropriate and preferred location for a fenced dog park in Maroondah.

At a meeting on Monday 12 December 2016, Council approved the construction of a fenced dog park in the reserve.

  • fully fenced area with double gated entrances
  • time out zone for young/quieter dogs
  • rock mounds
  • sand pits
  • agility equipment
  • seating
  • drinking fountain
  • bins and bag dispensers

The dog park will be at the front of Eastfield Park, as it:

  • is vacant area that is large and readily accessible
  • has the potential to cater for a fenced dog park facility
  • will integrate well with existing recreational activities and uses in the park.

Things that were considered when planning for the dog park for the site included:

  • the benefits of existing or space for new car parking facilities
  • availability of space for the fenced park itself
  • integration with existing amenities such as children’s playground
  • benefits from good walking trail and footpath access along with active surveillance from those passing the site.
